This how to was brought about by several different threads . Primarily PbrStreetgands thread asking about custon Brit sniper rifles and Arch13 request for images .
Secondly , MVSpartans request for some 1/6 gunsmithing tutorials .

This is one I am presently putting together for PBRstreetgang .

It still needs ome paint and a little sanding here and there .

Enfield L42A1.

Oh yeah ... One more thing . I was on AIM with PD this afternoon and he reminded me that our own Writtenman has made one of these quite some time ago . I do remember seeing the photos and marveling at his brilliant work . In short . This is not the first .


That being said . Here is a list of tools you will need:

• Hobby Saw

• Sandpaper and emory boards of varying grits (Rough to fine )

• Plastic / Styrene solvent

• Dremmel

• Styrene tube .

Below is a picture of the 1/1 rifle

1.

I noticed that the modified 1/1 rifles stock was a bit shorter , so I made marks on it as initial cutting guides .
